emt Distribution adds Matrix42 to cyber security portfolio

emt Distribution adds Matrix42 workspace management to cyber security portfolio

emt Distribution has inked an exclusive distribution deal with Matrix42 to provide workspace management solutions across Australia and New Zealand in a deal the companies say offer ‘outstanding’ business opportunities for resellers for consulting, implementation and support.

Richard Rundle, emt Distributio chief executive, says “With the addition of Matrix42 to our portfolio, our partners have an opportunity to go beyond offering just security, software asset management or IT service management by combining all three.”

Matrix42’s offerings are designed to help organisations and resellers maximise IT administration efficiency and improve security while minimising licensing costs. The vendor has an Australian customer base which includes major retailers and financial institutions.

“Matrix42 puts organisations in control of user workspaces by automating the discovery, provisioning and patching of software across desktops and mobiles,” Rundle says.

“By controlling and implying they computing environments, they can more easily secure against targeted attacks.”

Rundle claims controlling, automating and securing the processes and workflows can reduce costs to ANZ businesses by as much as 30%.

“The cost to Australian and New Zealand business of uncontrolled and unauthorised applications, the struggle to stay on top of mobile infrastructure and the over-investment in software licenses is staggering,” he says.

Philippe Ortodoro, Matrix42 senior vice president of global sales, says the vendor, which is 100% channel in ANZ, offers partners ‘not only exciting local and global projects, but also access to our customers and thus business opportunities beyond the projects’.

emt has hired two dedicated Matrix42 staff members.

Oliver Bendig, Matrix42 chief executive, says the partnership with emt is a important step for the company’s continued growth in ANZ.

“The Asia Pacific region is a significant market for us, which we can develop together with met and our regional partners,” Bendig says.
